My wife and myself are buying some land in the Sewanee/Mounteagle area. We go to settlement on May 21, 2008. I am trying to find some history info (books, articles, etc) for that area. Also would be interested in any general info from people who live there. We have looked all over TN for a place to build our home and fell in love with that area. I will be back down there for a visit in ealy Jun. We are looking for builders, home designers, etc. also. Any info would be greatly apreciated.

Default Welcome

J: Welcome to the neighborhood, think you will enjoy our more mild weather down here. Up on top of the plateau, with the good soil, was always just a good farming territory.
. However the Lookout river gorge area, lower mtn S.E. area goes back to Revolutionary war era with the British and the indians being driven from thnis area. "Trail of Tears" is the story to Search for. Still recalled each year with Cycle ride between states.
. 100 years later was Civil war battles, same gorge area, dams to tame the river navigation. Some rifle trench lines can still be seen in Reflection Riding" park, Lookout mtn area.
. Again you will ENJOY this area very much.

Tennessee River Gorge Trust will have more conservation pics, activities, etc. Their quartly pamphlet "The CANYON WATCHER' has lots of volunteer / festivals, hikes, kayak trips, etc.
. Also the 305 mile Linear hike state park the CUMBERLAND TRAIL or CT, or Great Eastern trail is being built along the Walden ridge plateau. More pics on their website.
